    The influence of different vegetation covers of the set-aside land on the volumetric water content (VWC) and its variations during the day in upper soil layers (5 and 15 cm) was observed using the TDR method in 15 min intervals from May to August in 2002 and 2003. A spontaneous fallow was established in autumn 2001 and plots with artificial revegetation sowed with the mixture of Dactylis polygama and Trifolium repens in spring 2002. The experimental plots were mulched twice during the vegetation period. VWC was registered in the same time also on bare ground.

    Although there seems to be a broad consensus to prohibit insider trading among supervising authorities and market professionals, the debate on insider trading has not settled definitively. We introduce a distinction between insider trading and market manipulation on the one hand and corporate insiders versus misappropriators on the other hand. This gives rise to four types of alleged wrong transactions. Using a utilitarian and a non-utilitarian fairness approach, we demonstrate that it is hard to find good arguments against insider trading in its purest form (type I transactions).

    against civilian villagers in northern Karen State would normally be drawing to a close.
    However, quite the opposite is happening. The resumption of SPDC Army attacks on
    villages and the increased patrols in Toungoo District shows that the offensive is far from
    over. Thousands more landmines have been reportedly deployed across Toungoo District to
    isolate certain parts of the district and restrict villagers’ movements. An analysis of SPDC
